TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Chief of the General Staff Huang Shu-kuang (黃曙光) on Friday (July 31) announced that in the future, the armed forces will be more integrated to closely monitor Chinese targets in the nation’s air and maritime space.

As the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has sent countless military aircraft and warships to circumnavigate Taiwan and intrude into the nation’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) since the beginning of 2020, the Taiwanese military has taken great care to boost defenses, especially on its east coast.

Accompanied by Ministry of National Defense (MND) Chief Sergeant Pan Wen-ching (潘文清), Huang went to the Army's Huadong (Hualien-Taidong) Defense Command in Hualien and met with Minister of National Defense Yen Teh-fa (嚴德發) to listen to briefings and review the current situation of combat readiness, training, and the effectiveness of volunteer recruitment, according to Military News Agency.

Li Jung-hua (李榮華), the commander of the Huadong Defense Command, and Lieutenant General Sun Lien-sheng (孫連勝), the commander of the Air Force’s Department of Education and Standards, and other important military cadres presented up-to-date military reports to the visiting officials.    [FULL  STORY]
